Rudbeckia fulgida 'American Gold Rush' is a compact cultivar of black-eyed Susan bred for disease resistance and smaller stature than other Rudbeckia. Slightly smaller than Rudbeckia fulgida 'Goldsturm', at only one to two feet tall, 'American Gold Rush' produces long-lasting 2" golden yellow blooms with dark yellow to chocolate brown centers from mid-summer into the fall. Flowers are an attractive golden yellow and are very popular with pollinators, and after blooms begin to die back, persistent seed cones act as food for a great number of birds.

Rudbeckia fulgida 'American Gold Rush'  is resistant to deer browsing as well as drought conditions once established, but grows best in average, moist, well-drained soils. No stranger to hot and humid summers, this cultivar's flowers are not prone to flopping unless given too much fertilizer, and make for an excellent addition to cut flower arrangements.
